Simplicity 3775, How do I love thee?

I know that there is concern out there about the clinginess/figure flattering abilities of a knit dress.  One worries that every lump or bump will be visible, and that knit dresses are only for those with perfect figures.  Well, I have for you today conclusive evidence that this is not the case!
Here is my bump, at 17 weeks (yesterday!).  We're coming along...  I made the dress nearly a year ago.  You can see all the details here.
But standing up straight and without my hand under the belly, and where is that bump??  I would also add that this dress was easy to make and forgiving to fit, as knits tend to be.  It is also as comfortable as my PJs.

Ladies, if it can hide a 17 week pregnancy, it can hide whatever you've got!  Go make yourself a knit dress!

  15. Yay!!!!! Congratulations. I'm 21 weeks today. My maternity wardwrobe consists almost exclusively of knit dresses for precisely this reason; no constriction and they "grow" with you. Congrats again. So exciting!

  19. It is a great pattern! I love knit dresses--fitting is a very approximate kind of thing with knits.

  20. You look great! The dress is really cute with your 17 week belly! My last pregnancy was twins -- 17 weeks was a little more than that! Well, I didn't gain a huge amount, but it was so solid and hard to move around because there were TWO in there!

  22. This is why I love knit dresses so much - they grow and shrink with you. Nice to see that this is still the case even with a baby bump. :)
